We came for the Stratford Festival for 2 nights, and it was perfect. Heather was the perfect host, delicious breakfasts (though a bit over the top), companionable guests, and within walking distance of the theatres. Heather was great fun to talk to. Highly recommended.

Heather is a delightful host. This home is so welcoming and comfortable. Our room was spacious and immaculate. And the breakfasts were exquisite! Delicious coffee with fresh organic cream, produce from the farmers market, and perfectly prepared dishes.

A classic stay . This 1881 beauty did not disappoint . Gracefully decorated with art and antiques Heather has created a gem. Fresh baked scones ,homemade jam, local apple cider ,frittata with goat cheese and roasted peppers and scalloped potatoes served in a stunning dinning room with French pressed coffee. It doesn’t get better than this and walking distance to the theatres gardens and downtown. Spectacular! Thank you Heather for the guided walk after our lovely breakfast. We will return. Mona Brown

Fabulous breakfast, lovely decor and attention to detail made our visit a fantastic experience. Our host, Heather, went out of her way to accommodate everyone and to offer an inviting and welcoming experience. The cooking was absolutely outstanding and included home baking along with a decadent breakfast both days! We'd love to come back. - Mary Ann and Bernie, Toronto, ON

The Chisholmes in Stratford is a beautiful victorian house well located midway between the Festival Theatre and the downtown theatres, easy walking distance from all. Our room (Parisienne) was exceptionally comfortable, queen bed, large shower. Large front porch has plenty of seating for late evening relaxing. Heather's breakfast is every bit as good as previous reviews have stated. We look forward to returning for a longer visit next year.

Just ended a 2-week stay at Chisholms. Could not have been better. Heather is a lovely, gracious hostess and a fabulous cook. She is also enormously accommodating to special requests and needs. Breakfasts are wonderful. Rooms are excellent and the location is perfect. i can’t imagine staying anywhere else.

We have just spent 5 amazing days at The Chisholms in Stratford. Our hostess was warm, welcoming and a gourmet cook. We had gourmet breakfasts every morning with the other guests at the B&B and had lively conversations about not only the wonderful plays we had seen, but all other topics under the sun. We have been coming to the Stratford Festival for 10 years. We have stayed at many other hotels and B&B's. The Chisholms is the best accommodations we have found. Gail McGraw

We had a wonderful stay at The Chisholms in Stratford, and we highly recommend it to anyone who values beautiful architecture, antique interiors and fabulous and friendly service. Our room was very comfortable with all the amenities you'd expect from a first class establishment. The breakfast was delicious, and served on beautiful antique china in the dining room, which was crowned by a beautiful chandelier, one of many in the house. The Chisholms is a five minute walk to the Festival Theatre and the river and parks, and a seven minute walk into the town. Relax with a drink on the gracious wrap-around porch and watch the world go by. Thank you to Heather for such a memorable stay in Stratford.

I would like to thank Heather for a super welcome and great tips, while me and my partner were staying at her wonderful B&B.This was my first time at such a place and I was really surprised by the unique touches and high end furniture and care she incorporates into her place. It was very convenient that all theaters are a comfortable walking distance away from her place and the delicious breakfast with wonderful baked goods definitely started the morning off the right way. I really liked the porch and wish I would have brought a cigar to enjoy there in the evening although I think it seats 7 or 8 it was just me out there enjoying the fresh breeze. I would definitely like to return for a few more days and relax while exploring everything that Stratford offers.

Just spent four nights at The Chisholms. This property is a very short walk from the downtown shopping/dining district. The English room was well appointed and quite comfortable. The rooms are meticulously maintained. The breakfasts are amazing! Heather incorporates farm fresh fruits and veg into delicious dishes each morning. I must say, the hospitality here is welcoming and appreciated. Stella, the resident pup, just made the stay doubly enjoyable! Looking forward to my next visit!
